It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I haven’t been on the bike as much this year. I sold my house and bought a condo. Between getting the house ready for sale, condo ready for move in, packing & moving, not to mention emergency surgery in August, there isn’t been a lot of time for the bike.
So I got out on the 17th. It had been raining pretty hard all morning and was supposed to rain again in the afternoon but there was a window when it was dry. I started out at Tuttle Park, just north of campus and headed south on the Olentangy Bike Trail. I got off the trail at Goodale Blvd. and headed over to the Arena District. In my May 9th post last year I had some pictures of this old building being torn down behind Huntington Park (Clippers baseball). I wanted to see what was going up in its place. Here it is.
It’s not a very exciting building. I’m glad they left the beams from the old Buggy Works factory.
From there, I took Nationwide Blvd. east to Neil Ave and went south. I came across some “walk for” in progress. Almost every Saturday someone is having a walk for something. This one was for pancreatic cancer.
There’s a new building going up at the corner of Spring Street & Neil Avenue. It’s going to be condos.
From there I rode over to Long Street where I found another building going up at Front Street. It’s going to be a city office building.
Came across a homeless person sleeping in a doorway on Long St.
(Sorry about the fuzzy pic. I took it on the move.)
And another one in the next doorway.
Then I went over to the Scioto Mile and took a break.
In my September 6, 2014 post I had a picture of the downtown riverfront under construction. It looks like this now.
Then I headed up to High Street. They are staring on two new buildings on High Street between Long Street & Gay Street.
I didn’t include a picture of both sites because the north hole looks pretty much like the south hole.
This building on the corner of High & Main is finished and occupied.
More construction at Town Street & High Street.
Further north on High Street in the Short North if found this new building at Hubbard St. Businesses on the ground floor, apartments above, parking garage and more apartments in back. It’s called The Hub.
I was surprised how much the city had changed in a year.
Through campus and back to Tuttle Park – 13 miles.
